"Being the last big hurrah of the summer and with Mister Stevie Wonder on Sunday night headlining duties, there was never any doubt that Bestival 2012 was going to be just that bit more special than your average trip across the Solent. Accompanied by the finest weather this summer has seen (and the suitably red body parts that follow), a smothering of Kigus (the 21st century's answer to wildlife don't ya know), and an owl with lasers for eyes, Rob and Josie's ninth year was definitely their biggest and their best. With a lineup that saw Gallows follow Adam Ant and Friendly Fires precede Orbital, De La Soul and The Cuban Brothers sandwiched between Sister Sledge and Earth, Wind and Fire, and Two Door Cinema Club warm the stage for New Order, Sunday's two hour set from the legend was almost just another highlight."
